Hi, Thank you for your review! We do have a Wireless Bluetooth Data Logger called the Kestrel DROP. The D1 DROP measures temperature only. Using the DROP along with the Kestrel LiNK app on your smartphone or tablet, you can download data or view real-time readings when within Bluetooth Range. You can find the D1 DROP [here](
